A product of the Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP), the ONE Mortgage is safe, secure, and tailor-made for first-time homebuyers. The program breaks down barriers that prevent creditworthy families from buying a home: inadequate consumer education, high interest rates and fees, excessive down payment requirements, compulsory mortgage insurance, and provides mortgage options for the purchase of two- and three-family properties.
Down payments as low as 3%. For condominiums or one- and two-family properties, the minimum for a down payment is just 3% of the purchase price—and only 5% for a three-family property.
Low, fixed interest rates. With the ONE Mortgage, homebuyers enjoy a discounted, fixed interest rate.
Pay no Private Mortgage Insurance. By not paying for costly Private Mortgage Insurance, ONE Mortgage homebuyers save hundreds of dollars every month.
Financial assistance. Based on income, ONE Mortgage customers may also qualify for an additional monthly savings during their first seven years of ownership. MHP Interest Subsidy reduces monthly mortgage payments in the early years of ownership.
